Dr. Andrew DeGruccio answered

Specializes in Orthopedic Surgery

Identify the cause: See an orthopedic surgeon or sports specialist. The source of the locking must be identified to solve the problem. Exam, x-rays, and possibly MRI may be needed. Locking can occur as a result of loose bodies, meniscal tears, cartilage defects, arthritis, scar tissue, etc. Each of these would be treated differently.
